    Phillip Humber got the win. Two pinch hitters made a flyout and a whiff. Humber's first win of the season and 21st Perfecto in MLB history.

    I think the Muts have more ex-teammates throw Perfectos or no-no's than anyone else. Ryan, Cone, Gooden.

    Pretty sure if that last batter runs out the dropped third strike, instead of arguing with the ump, would have been safe at first.

    The best part about it was not having to listen to the Chicago announcers call it.

    Coming back from 9-0 has to be the offensive equivalent of a perfect game, so two perfect games in one day.

    Perfect game, big deal. Why did they have to interrupt the Yankee game for it? I missed seeing the beginning of the big rally in the seventh inning, including Swisher's grand slam!

    Beating the Red Sox after they being down 9-0 after five is worth three perfect games by any non-Yankee. I hate Fox.

    So if he'd been ejected for arguing balls & strikes, that would've still been a Perfecto?

    Re: A Perfect Game!!!

    odd way to end a perfect game but it's recorded, so congrats to Humber.

    I am so sick of the commercial but thought Verlander's tweet to humber was funny:

    Justin Verlander ‏ @JustinVerlander


    Congrats to @Philip_Humber! 21st perfect game in history. Guess @KateUpton will let him in the perfect club now. I'm still out! Lol

    I was happy to have witnessed it. Call me crazy but as much as we missed I'm okay with the trade off.
